"Traditional Mexican Posole is served with shredded cabbage, lime wedges, avocado, onion, cilantro, and, of course, warm tortillas. Many Mexican markets have posole meat already chopped up for you. You can add another can of hominy if your slow-cooker is large. I prefer hot enchilada sauce with salsa, but the regular kind will do."

Recipe Ingredients for Slow-Cooker Posole

1 tablespoon canola oil
2 pound boneless pork loin roast, cut into 1-inch cubes
29 ounce enchilada sauce
31 ounce white hominy, drained
1 onion, sliced
1/2 cup green chilies, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Slow-Cooker Posole

  1. Heat the canola oil in a skillet over high heat. Add the pork; cook and stir just until meat is browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.

  2. Place the meat in a 4 quart slow cooker. Pour the enchilada sauce over the meat. Top with the hominy, onion, chilies, garlic, cayenne pepper, and oregano. Pour in enough water to fill the slow cooker.
